This is a "nobori" made of hand-spun cotton and has hand-painted samurai and horse motifs. Nobori is a banner which was post on Tango-no-sekku ( the boy's festival ) on May 5th when people celebrated the healthy and strong growth of boys. The technique used is tsutsugaki and painted with pigments. It is a part of the original length. Generally in good condition except for a mending, water wet stains in the white horse and a few holes. 19th century ( probably late Edo ) 94cm x 2m8cm
